Call for Postcards

Are you a hobby photographer? Do you live on an island? Are you working for an island municipality? Or were you on holiday and impressed by the beauty of an island? No matter what, if you want to see your picture as a postcard, submit it to:

The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat is releasing a call for postcards: Greetings from the islands as a photo challenge! This year, there will be three calls for postcards in total. Each call will include a photo competition with two winners whose pictures will be turned into postcards. Send us your photos from an EU island that is pursuing its clean energy transition.

The first call for postcards is starting now, deadline for submission is September 30, 2021. Please kindly only submit one photo. 

How does it work? Fill in this form and send it to our email address together with your picture and this data protection document. Please note that the assessment criteria for the postcard call are the following: 

  • Uniqueness of Concept / Originality
  • Creativity
  • Overall Artistic Impression / Composition
  • Visual Appeal

What motifs can you submit? Almost anything! Landscapes, people (of course with their consent), renewable energy facilities and technologies.

The postcards will be posted on our social media, website, spread via email, printed to allocate them to our regional partners, and used for next year’s Clean energy for EU islands forum 2022!

You can then download them, write down your island’s story or message and send them back to us so we can publish them! Raise awareness of your island’s projects or aims and show the community what you are up to.
